"Maixieyan" is also called "Miexieyan", which means to drive away evil spirits. Maixieyan is also called "Qiaogu Mountain". According to the "Xianyou County Chronicles", in the last years of the Song Dynasty, Jin Shi Lin Biqing (word Qiaogu) was an erudite, knowledgeable and versed in astronomy and geography. rock. Yuan Shizu Kublai asked him to come out as an official. He was determined not to resign, and Kublai admired his integrity. Using his word-Qiaogu, the royal book "Qiaogu Mountain" was given to him, and it was engraved on the entrance of the scenic spot. On the far rock, the nameplate below has an introduction. Maixieyan Mountain is densely forested and the environment is quiet. There are no crowds in other scenic spots. Only a dozen people were encountered along the way. The mountain is not high, only a section is relatively steep, and the overall view is good. Lin Guangchao, a famous Neo-Confucian in Song Dynasty, called it "Little Wuyi Mountain", which is one of the four scenic spots in Xianyou and one of the twenty-four scenic spots in Putian. Tickets cost 30 yuan. I met a few travel friends who said they came from the back mountain and didn't buy tickets. "Maixieyan" is 10 kilometers away from "Jiuli Lake", "Jiuli Lake" is mainly for watching streams and waterfalls, and Maixieyan is for watching mountains, each with its own characteristics.
Xianyou is a more famous attraction. It is very cost-effective. It is not far from Jiuli Lake. You can see far from the heights. If you go in autumn, you can see a large golden rice field. The sunset is also super beautiful. There was no good weather at that time.
The most impressive thing about Lai Mai Xieyan is the tortoise-shaped stone, lying there quietly, looking at the eyes, like hatching eggs, so it is called "turtle hatching eggs"
When I went to Xianyou Maixieyan, I saw a pavilion head on before climbing the mountain. When I asked, I knew that the rock on the side of the pavilion was engraved with the words "Qiaogu Mountain", which was written by the Yuan Shizu Kublai. This mountain became famous early and its extraordinary status can be seen from this. Sit in the pavilion, and suddenly felt a rush of cold air and moisture penetrate into the muscles. Leaning forward to see, there is a mountain spring beside the pavilion. The water is extremely clear, but there is no sound. Could it be that the "spring eyes are silent and cherish the trickle, the green shade illuminates the water and love the softness" has moved here? There are a few orchids in the spring, one red and the other blue dragonflies. It's been a long time, these lovely creatures who are only willing to accompany nature forever, above the silent cold spring, they must be dreaming quietly, otherwise, when our figure is dangling in the water mirror, they are nothing. Fly away? The cold spring lingers under a big rock, so stay here to escape the heat and enjoy the cold? The already cold spring water is even more cold because of the shade of the stone. No wonder a breath of fresh air permeates from under the stone, directly driving the noon heat, so that we who have just walked from the hustle and bustle of the vulgar dust suddenly feel refreshed. The mountain road leading to the Zen Temple looks very ancient. The sun-shading and thick shades of nanmu, Kemu, Qingtong, and Moso bamboo overlap, covering the mountain road like a deep green tunnel. The dark and secluded stone path was actually covered with moss all the way, presumably because of the trees covering it for years. However, the shade here is heavy, but the wind is transparent, so the moss is neither thick nor damp, but lightly and evenly spread on the road surface, and the slight dampness is also a bit dry, absolutely. No worries about people accidentally falling. There is such Tess punctuates the pavement, and every stone is full of life and natural kindness. Climbing to the temple in the middle of the mountain without breathing and sweating, walked in a few steps, and smelled a scent, not the smell lit by incense candles, but the delicate fragrance that diffuses after the soy milk is boiled. At first glance, it turned out to be tofu making in the temple. One person shook the filter cloth rack back and forth, and the white soy milk dripped into the big wooden barrel below. The big cauldron on the stove was boiled soy milk. One person was dripping salt into it, and white and tender tofu brains appeared in the cauldron. Learn about the process of making tofu from monks. It turns out that the beans they use are "Nine Moon Pearls" that soaked in mountain rain and dew. Soy milk is made of mountain spring water and soaked "Nine Moon Pearls", and then they are ground with stones. After grinding, use gauze to filter the soy milk into a wooden barrel, then pour it into a large cauldron and cook it with wood fire. This kind of bean curd, which is soaked in mountain spring, refined by stone, boiled with firewood, and bitterned, is no wonder that the temple is full of fragrance. Look at the fields next to the monastery. Potato vines are flourishing, cabbage is young and tender, and melons are full of fruits. This famous temple built in the Song Dynasty, the kind and natural charm makes me happy. I heard that there is an "astrologer stone" shaped like a stone chair on the mountain, where Zheng Qiao, a famous historian of the Southern Song Dynasty, watched the sky at night. Climb to the top of the peak, and see that the stone has a good character. The stone is carved with four big characters "Chuang Kaiyan Pai" and hundreds of small characters. The small characters are like dragons and snakes flying like tadpoles playing in the water. It is said to be Zheng Qiao's handwriting. Unfortunately, it is difficult to recognize because of the age. Looking at the sky and clouds here, you really have a wide field of vision. If you watch the stars and the moon at night, you must see the bright and bright scenery in front of you. Suddenly remembered that Putian Jiaji Thatched Cottage also has an astrological stone by Zheng Qiao on the mountain. This historian who has written more than 300 volumes in his life seems to particularly like the quiet night sky. When he sat on the astrological stone, did he want to print some of the opinions in the certificate through field observation, or to expand the space of thinking and obtain inspiration for writing in the dialogue with the sky? There used to be a "Jianji Academy" here, where Zheng Qiao studied at that time. It is said that the remains are now hard to find, but I seem unwilling to pull away the wild vines and grass to look for the broken tiles left by the years. The relics of history may be difficult to find, but I believe that in this search, I will have more experience of Zheng Qiao’s lonely and hard study, and I will slowly find the peace and indifference in my heart for a long time. And detached and impetuous pleasure. Maixieyan is famous for its strange rocks. The most strange cave is Yingzhen Cave at the lower part of the temple. It is said that if a fire burns in the cave, a thick smoke will emerge from the top of the mountain. The strangest stone is the highest peak of the bell stone, which stands tall like a bronze bell. According to legend, whenever the climate changes suddenly, this stone will emit a low bell, which can be heard by people as far away as the Hanjiang River in Putian. Is it really so magical? We have difficulty verifying it, because the world outside is so wonderful now. The peaks of Maixieyan cannot have the same visibility as before, and the sound waves emitted by the bell stone cannot be as quiet and undisturbed as before. To spread. However, I love Maixieyan more, in the rolling red dust, she still insists on her own purity and tranquility. Among the strange rocks, the little mouse sleeping soundly has not left the lovely stone pier so far; the Ganoderma lucidum that blooms vividly on the rock has not gone down the mountain because of its extraordinary value. There is a cliff above the astrologer stone. On the cliff, there is a stone boat "rested". The thin stone flakes are raised on both sides and the bow of the ship is slightly raised. When the mountain mist rushed to its feet, it should have anchored and sailed away. But it does not go. Sometimes it looks like a spaceship again. When the auspicious clouds in the sky descended in front of its eyes, it was supposed to fly away by the wind, but it did not leave. Compared with the noisy tourist attractions, Maixieyan seems to be a bit lonely, and some tourist routes have even been submerged by chaotic grasses. However, Maixieyan is in such a lonely persistence, conveying the beauty of timeless tranquility. Attracting a few soulmates to come and visit.
Fujian has "eight mountains, one river and one field", so you can see mountains everywhere. Xianyou is surrounded by mountains everywhere, and the posters of the mountains are relatively tall. Maixieyan is located in Zhongshan Town, known as "Little Wuyi". It is indeed quite good. The scenery is beautiful and the mountain scenery is endless. It is a good place for mountain climbing and entertainment.
